Marel employee welfare

Every person counts

Our people drive our success

Every time our people collaborate, cooperate and communicate, they contribute to making Marel a world leader in food processing.

Our people make us the partner of choice for customers around the world. As we work together with food processors to transform the way food is processed, we understand the importance of individual representation and inclusion at work.

We come from a myriad of cultural, geographical, professional and personal backgrounds, and we respect and encourage this diversity.

Just as we connect a series of high-tech products to create smarter factories, Marel’s value comes from the sum of its parts – its people.

I love working at Marel because I know that my job is important and my ideas matter.
